December Travel Scholarship Winner

Traveling the world is a dream many of us have dreamed. Here at Trover, we’d love for more people to make this dream a reality–but we know it’s not an easy feat for all.

This is why we launched the Trover travel scholarship last month. At the beginning of each month, we are giving away $500 to help an adventurous soul continue to explore the world and inspire our special, passionate community of travelers on Trover to do the same.

Last month, we were stoked to present this award to Completely Wanderlust. This month, we’d like to declare the winner as (drum roll)… Nicole Smith!

We are so excited to introduce Nicole to you! Hailing from Adelaide in South Australia, this Aussie already had a passion for exploration from a young age and loved to visit other cities around Australia. She didn’t stop there though.

After being ‘bitten by the travel bug,’ which also happens to be the name of her travel blog, Nicole went on to travel the world – starting with a solo trip to America and continuing with a stint in London – two milestones of what will be an eternal quest for exploration.
